The MicroFlex e100, MicroFlex e150and MotiFlex e180 are fully programmable in MINT and offer Ethernet connectivity, combined with on-board I/O and serial port for a simple HMI interface.
Motion programming can be used for a complete motion solution, or fo decentralised intelligence and a simpler PLC to achieve automation tasks.
Single axis solutions
Our motion drives offer a very cost competitive solution to simple single axis applications by integrating motion, logic, HMI interfacing and network connectivity. Easily solving applications requiring cut to length, infeed control, or point-to-point positioning.
Geared motion and CAMs
MicroFlex e150 and MotiFlex e180 also offer advanced MINT which features additional motion functions for flying shears, reciprocal CAM motion and spline interpolation.
Distributed motion drives
e100, e150 and e180 drive families can be used as distributed intelligent drives, where each axis acts autonomously to a degree, perfoming it's own motion tasks, but commanded by a central controller such as our AC500 PLC product line.
A choice of networks are available from which the drives can be controlled, such as Modbus TCP, EtherCAT and even Modbus RTU for lower cost.
